Improved Design-Oriented Confinement Models for FRP-Wrapped Concrete Cylinders based on Statistical Analyses
This paper introduces improved design-oriented confinement models for cylindrical concrete members wrapped with fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites based on a rigorous statistical evaluation of a large database. As ...
Strengthening Slender Reinforced Concrete Columns Using High-Modulus Bonded Longitudinal Reinforcement for Buckling Control
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2015-04)
This paper introduces a model for strengthening slender reinforced concrete columns. The proposed technique aims at controlling second-order lateral deflections using longitudinal high-modulus bonded reinforcement, thereby ...
Flexural Behavior of Sandwich Panels made of FRP Composites: Synthetic and Natural Fibers
Sandwich panels made of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) skins and light-weight core materials have the potential to be effectively used in several structural applications such as cladding, decking, and roofing panels. The ...
Durability of Flax FRPs Exposed to Accelerated Environmental Conditions
(CDCC 2017, 2017-07-19)
It is well known that synthetic fiber reinforcements, such as glass fibers, elevate the mechanical properties of polymer materials. Considering the synthetic material’s renewability challenges, natural fibers, such as flax ...
